Advanced Practice Role

Three semester hours, theory only.

This course explores the advanced practice roles of educator, change agent, researcher, advocate, clinician, consultant, collaborator, and manager of systems. The historical development and acceptance of the nurse practitioner and other advanced practice roles are traced through nursing practice acts, requirements imposed by state nursing boards, national certification efforts, third party payment systems, and various professional organizations. Selected issues such as the scope of practice and political, economic, and legislative influences are analyzed. Prerequisites: NFNP 5301 and NFNP 5302.
